1. Make sure you know your goals.

Knowing what goals you’re working toward is the first step in becoming more disciplined.

Without knowing what you’re working toward, it can be difficult – if not impossible – to actually hold yourself accountable.

Clearly define your goals and put them somewhere visible. Write them down on sticky notes and put them on your bathroom mirror. Put them on a whiteboard in your kitchen, or on your cell phone’s wallpaper.

2. Understand your why.

2. Understand your why.

You need more than a goal to develop discipline. You need to look a little deeper and make sure you know why that goal is important to you.Why do you want to earn that promotion at work?

Want to stop smoking, eat healthier, or kick that bad habit? Why?

By getting really clear on why your goal matters, it becomes much easier to convince yourself to take action and do whatever it takes to get there.

If you can remind yourself exactly why you’re running a mile each morning, you’ll be way more likely to lace up your shoes and make it happen – instead of telling yourself it can wait.

3. Build helpful habits.

Habits are incredibly powerful tools that benefit numerous areas of our lives – including our ability to develop discipline.

Habits are essentially little actions we incorporate into our lives on a regular, routine basis.Consider what habits might help you achieve your goals through discipline – and find a way to incorporate them throughout your day.

4. Get rid of temptation

4. Get rid of temptation

Temptation is the enemy of discipline.

And while some people are great at resisting temptation, saying ‘no’, and sticking to a plan – some of us aren’t so lucky.

If you’re struggling to develop self-discipline because you have too many temptations leading you astray, the answer is pretty simple – find ways to get rid of them.

Can’t seem to say no to sweets, even though you’re determined to drop 10 lbs and stick to your diet? Get rid of the temptation by skipping the cookies at the grocery store and keeping your pantry free of the things that’ll derail you from your goals.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
